Mao Zedong, founder of the People’s Republic of China, qualifies as the greatest mass murderer in world history, an expert who had unprecedented access to official Communist Party archives said yesterday. Speaking at The Independent Woodstock Literary Festival, Frank Dikötter, a Hong Kong-based historian, said he found that during the time that Mao was enforcing the Great Leap Forward in 1958, in an effort to catch up with the economy of the Western world, he was responsible for overseeing “one of the worst catastrophes the world has ever known”.
Will Mrs Merrett U turn? not as long as i have a hole in my —-
Greater Manchester’s Mayor and Police and Crime Commissioner has welcomed the Chancellor’s climb down on cuts to policing. Responding to George Osborne’s announcement that overall spending on policing will not be cut further Tony Lloyd said: “George Osborne has listened to what I and other police leaders, politicians and the public have been saying for some time – cuts to local policing put our communities in danger
Seriously does this man think that the Tories listen to him? no it would have been political suicide to make more cuts after the Paris murders and the tensions around Europe at present. The Tory statement took a lot of guesses on how the economy would perform and we saw a Chancellor marking out his territory, mark my words when the pressure on finances grow and tax revenue drops and Paris is one more forgotten atrocity the Tories will have a rethink.

Labour’s Cllr Merrett added: “If everyone in the city recycled 22 extra plastic bottles, 17 extra glass jars, and 30 more cans a year, it would push recycling rates in the city up by 5pc.”glad to see she does her sums.
